KIEV, March 26 (Itar-Tass) — Ukraine is trying to offer a model of working with the Customs Union /CU/ which could answer regulations of the World Trade Organisation /WTO/, Ukraine’s Prime Minister Nikolai Azarov said during a meeting with Chairman of the collegiums of the Eurasian Economic Commission Viktor Khristenko on Monday.
“We are watching closely work of the Customs Union. There are both positive issues and aspects which require attention: trade of pipes, cheese, etc,” Azarov said.
He said that on March 29-30 Kiev will host a delegation of the CU.
“We shall have a meeting on technical regulations,” the prime minister said adding that “24 technical regulations have been processed by various ministries.”
“We would like to agree the model of the Customs Union’s work with conditions of work of the WTO,” Azarov said. “We hope the Russian side will support us.”
Azarov said that Russia had not supported yet the Ukrainian variant of cooperation in the framework of the Customs Union in the format of “three plus one.” Addressing Khristenko, the prime minister said “we /Ukraine’s government/ have received your draft and will study it.”
